Instructions: Start by creating your sign base using several layers for strength. I used several layers of Chipboard followed by a layer of brown card stock and finally panels cut from the Monkeying Around Paper Collection. The sign and Relax sentiment were found on the internet in various locations and tweaked to fit my sign.

All the images, except for the flowers, were stamped on white card stock using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with Pebbles Chalks and a combination of Desert Sand and Work Lipstick distress inks which were applied with a Dove Blender Pen. The Palm Trees and Banana Leaves were distressed with Peeled Paint and Ground Expresso before brushing with Mod Podge for extra stiffness. The flowers were stamped on white card stock using Expresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before coloring with a Dove Blender Pen and Squeezed Lemonade ink. A bit of sparkle was added with a Quickie Glue Pen and Micro Glitter Crystal.
